Hi, only my son and husband are expected to do this fishing trip, does it have to be a party of 4 or more or can it just be the 2 of them.If so how much would it be for each of them. Or is it 290 for 4 hours even if its just the 2 of them.

Hello Cindy, the pricing of $290usd would be total for the two of them on a private charter.
